  • 2019 will be the seventh year the work camp has been organized and, as mentioned above, its purpose is the recovery of a network of trenches located on the Mount Lemoatx where a battle was fought during the Civil War.One of the objectives is to recover historic memory by carrying out excavation works and research, following the footprints of the Civil War in the year 1937. Work carried out in previous years uncovered more trenches than expected. Given that these findings have significant repercussions for the area and its inhabitants, this year the aim is to study a new area that, from an archaeological point of view, may be very important. To do this, new excavation works will be carried out.The work is overseen by the Aranzadi Science Association.

SVI is the Spanish association which represents the Spanish workcamps managed by the Autonomous Regions (except those in Catalonia). We are under the Institute of Youth (Injuve).

Injuve, an Autonomous Department of the Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality, has, for some years now, been promoting specific programmes which are aimed at increasing and favouring different travel possibilities for young people. This enables those under 30 years of age to become aware of other realities, visit other places and have access to other cultures.

Included among these programmes is one known as International Voluntary Service (SVI), which deals only with workcamps. These are aimed at youth between 18 and 26 years old and their main objectives are:

- To encourage conduct that will favour the exchange of ideas and young people’s global development. This is achieved by volunteering and from the contributions made by youth from their own experience. This strengthens intercultural learning processes, personal development and the reinforcement of democratic values.

- To integrate experiences, personal knowledge and the global development of youth in the carrying out of an activity, within the framework of voluntary service.
The Youth Institute co-ordinates the exchange of places for young Spaniards wanting to volunteer in foreign workcamps and foreigners wanting to volunteer in Spanish workcamps. The Spanish workcamps are managed by the Autonomous Regions.
